Plan to shut Devon shop may backfire

(07/24/03) DEVON - The owner of the Video Pleasures adult shop in Devon plans to exercise a three-year extension on his lease despite the fact that a church now owns the building.

The Kingdom Life Christian Church purchased the property with intentions of closing the store at the end of the year.

Storeowner Michael Friend says he is willing to accept a $200,000 buyout to close the shop, but the church has refused to pay that much.
